Review: Stone Cold

Stone Cold Stone Cold by C.J. Box
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just when I was thinking that perhaps it was time for Joe Pickett to retire, this book comes along. In this installment, Gov. Rulon sends Joe up north to Medicine Wheel on a "black ops" reconnaissance mission. Ostensibly Joe is going to deliver some ring necked pheasants for restocking, and help the incumbent game warden, Jim Latta, with some public relations work. In reality he's supposed to snoop around and find out all he can about a mysterious wealthy landowner named Wolf Templeton. Templeton has become the biggest landowner and power in the county, but the Feds are certain he's up to criminal activity. Joe is working with FBI agent Coons and he's told not to get involved with anything, report, and return. Of course, Joe can't not meddle. This was fast-paced, and there were a few surprising twists. I really enjoyed this one.
